Team Red Barn

Hi, we're Team Red Barn

We believe that the spaces we live and work in impact our happiness, quality of life and health. We value local relationships, environmentally responsible design and the New England vernacular. We are a Client-centered practice and think that good design ideas come from everywhere. We take the mantra “work hard and be nice to people” to heart.

Team Red Barn boasts a depth of professional and academic experience that benefit the practice. All Associates hold undergrad or graduate degrees and many are on a licensure track. We work to foster open knowledge sharing amongst our team and a collaborative environment. Check out our #meetredbarn series on Instagram to get to know the team better.
